I can't let June slip by without mentioning Garrett's baptism. Garrett has been waiting for this day, all year long. Garrett was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints today. In our church, they wait until the children are 8 years old before they baptize them. This way, the children are ready. They understand what is going on and they are at an age of accountability. Garrett had a smile on his face the entire day! Here is a picture of Garrett and Daddy! He was lucky to have his Dad baptize and confirm him today!

After a 2 day break, we are back at it. We enjoyed the 1st All Star game of the Summer! The 11 year old All Stars are on fire! The boys came out swinging and playing their positions well. Carter went 3 for 4 tonight and he even hit a homerun! It was awesome! A homerun in the very 1st All Star game. Here is a photo of Carter watching the ball go over the fence. You should have seen the smile on his face as he rounded the bases. His team met him on home plate to high five him.
He makes playing short stop look so easy. Here, he tagged up before the runner even slid into 2nd base. Can you tell I am one proud Mama? He is so much fun to watch!
I had to get a shot of him with his homerun ball. Way to go, Krupp!

The Padres did it! They swept the entire T.O.C.. They ended regular season with a 20-0 record. By the time T.O.C. was finished, they ended with a 25-0 record. AMAZING! 3 out of the 5T.O.C. games that they played, they 10 run ruled the other team. We are so very proud of Carter and the entire Padres team. What a great run! They ended their final game/win with a dog pile. What little boy doesn't love a good dog pile?

Carter found out earlier this month that he made the 11 year old All Star team. He was/is super thrilled. He had such an amazing experince last year and is hoping for a repeat. Part of being on the All Star squad is dying your hair. It is tradition and the entire team does it! We met over at our friends, the Siskas and got the boys blonde on. Here is Carter, right before.

Carter is the 4th pitcher on the Padres roster this season. We have 3, really good pitchers who have been coached to pitch. Carter, on the other hand, has never been trained/coached as a pitcher. In fact, he only pitched 5 innings through out the entire regular season. Coach Nick put Carter in as the starting pitcher for the 3rd T.O.C. game. Talk about nerve wracking for this Mama. I had nothing to stress about. Carter pitched the complete game, only giving up 3 hits. The final score was 13-0. It was a shut out. He did an outstanding job on the mound today! We are so proud of him.

We were thankful to celebrate another Father's Day. We love to show John just how much we love him!

Eight is GREAT! Mr. Garrett turned 8 years old today! We have been on the birthday countdown for a month now. We are all happy that the day has finally arrived. Garrett woke up to his bedroom door wrapped in wrapping paper and little presents and treats taped to it. The boys love this tradition. We can thank my friend, Brenda for the fun idea.
